Utah falls behind most states when it comes to women running for and serving in elected political roles. Utah needs more diversified voices on Capitol Hill and in cities, towns, and counties.
Moving Mountains for Utah Women.
The mission of the Utah Women & Leadership Project is to strengthen the impact of Utah girls and women. We serve Utah and its residents by 1) producing relevant, trustworthy, and applicable research; 2) creating and gathering valuable resources; and 3) convening trainings and events that inform, inspire, and ignite growth and change for all Utahns.
The UWLP hosts, offers, partners, and collaborates on programs, seminars, lectures, workshops, and think tanks aligned with efforts to move mountains for Utah girls and women. View all upcoming events.
VideosThese collections of videos are valuable resources for girls, women, and those who influence them. The first section includes videos that were captured from the “Utah Women’s Leadership Speaker & Dialogue Series” in partnership with the Utah Education Network (UEN). The second includes videos produced specifically about the importance of a college education for Utah women. Other sections provide a host of great resources on a variety of topics related to gender.
The UWLP started offering and co-hosting gatherings and events in 2014 and began capturing the “Utah Women’s Leadership Speaker & Dialogue Series” on video in 2015. We keep the past event information online as a resource for those looking for topics and speakers for future events. If you are interested in partnering on future events, contact us at email@example.com.
